We all know that healthy eating is a good idea. You probably grew up with your mom encouraging you to finish your veggies before you got up from the dinner table, but as adults we have to take healthy eating into our own hands. By making good food choices, we can help not just our bodies—but also our minds—be as healthy as possible.
If you’re looking for foods that pack the most health bang for your brain turn to these superfoods, which help improve your memory and your focus.
- Avocados: Chock full of vitamins B, C, and K, plus monosaturated fats which are great for your heart and folate which helps oxygen flow to your brain, avocados have a lot to offer your body. Their folate content will help lengthen your concentration span.
- Blueberries: These tiny berries come packed with antioxidants, vitamins C and K, potassium (which most Americans are short on), and gallic acid. This acid protects your brain cells against the damaging effects of anxiety and stress, improves cognitive capabilities, and helps communication between neurons.
- Flax Seeds: Pour these little seeds over your morning cereal or blend them in your smoothie to get alpha-linolenic acid, which is a good fat that helps your cerebral cortex stay healthy. This cortex processes information from your senses, so you depend on it to navigate and understand the world in which you live. Plus, flax seeds have zinc, which is great for memory!
